Securus Technologies has recently announced that they have reached an agreement to purchase government payment giant, GovPayNet. This acquisition is just the latest in a number of acquisitions that the inmate technology company has made in the past several years. President and CEO of Securus, Bob Pickens, is excited about the move, saying that it will now allow the company capability to process over 40 million transactions annually. It will allow the company to provide their existing customers with a wider suite of products. GovPayNet CEO, Mark MacKenzie, will stay on as the leader at the company and is excited to see their growth potential expand.
Securus Technologies was founded in 1986 and provides inmate technology services to prisons, correctional facilities, and government public safety agencies. They currently serve over 3,500 agencies across the United States. The company is headquartered in Dallas, with three other regional offices nationwide. This acquisition is the latest in over 20 different transactions that Securus has completed in the past several years.

Everyone values family. This is because it is what holds us up when we are in trouble. One of the sad moments in life is when one of us is convicted with criminal cases and have to serve a term in jail. However, families are slowly embracing the need of correctional services in the society. This is after the intervention of the Securus Technologies in the prisons.
The users say that with the company a lot of things has changed. For instance, the security system has improved. The Securus Technology has provided the prisons with gadgets that allow the administration to monitor everything that happens in the inmate’s cells.
The family members say that initially, their family members were paranoid because of the massive killings in jail. This were cases where the convicts had committed crimes with known personalities and were afraid they would confess. They cooperated with corrupted officers to kill the inmates to ensure that their evil deeds don’t ever come up.
With the innovative Securus Technologies, the users say that such cases have reduced to zero. This is because the officers are afraid of being seen. The technology has also reduced the bullying of new inmates.
The other technology that the users have appreciated is the ability to stay in touch with the outside world. This is through the embedded email the company has introduced. With this technology, the inmates on signing up can receive images and updates of development on the outside world.
This technology has reduced the challenges that inmates who have been in the jail for a long time face. Users say that most of their family members were not able to adjust to the new life after being released. This is because of the technology that brings changes in the world. Some of them committed crimes to go back to jail before the technology while others fell into depression.This has been erased by Securus services.
It hurts me to know that an innocent nine-month-old baby was murdered under the orders of an incarcerated gang member. This man was able to give such an order because he was in possession of a phone in jail. The fact that someone who is already in a corrections facility can orchestrate such an atrocious act is dumbfounding. For that reason, Wireless Containment Solution is one of the most impactful ideas Securus Technologies has ever come up with. It is designed to prevent contraband cell phones for accessing network.
It has been well received by the corrections community. Since its introduction to the world, it has prevented about 1.7 million illegal communication attempts in eight facilities, which is a very short time. Given the commitment of the company to making this technology better, it will do more in the future. No wonder one customer applauded the company’s mission to revolutionize the incarceration environment.

Giving Room to Innovation
I am certain that the ever-evolving investigative tools marry well with an aggressive investigative mindset, which is bad news for criminals everywhere. The company seeks to provide specialized communication experiences between detainees and their families. Today, Securus Technologies has served thousands of facilities and more than one million inmates nationwide. In a bid to be better and to give better services, the company invests heavily in research and development.
Whenever an inmate at a correctional institute has a need or wishes to communicate with the authorities he or she has to choose from a large assortment of paper forms. Securus Technologies do away with that by allowing facilities to create their own forms via the ConnectUs Inmate Forms and Grievance application.
Inmates can place an order for commissary items,new clothing, or even a book in the library. When they place an order they can see where their order or grievance is in the chain of custody.
